    Pros

    can make good money but need to give up your life - not even a joke

    Cons

    bad vibes, high pressure, bosses dont know what theyre doing, dangerous place to work, lack of skills and authority from senior management, training is non existent, salary is very poor, have to give 95% of your weeks and weekends up to make a good wage, would rather shove my face in the poor quality IGBT's in the IDS converters than work for them again,

    Advice to Management

    Needs a full restructure - listen to the technicians and it could be a great place to work. Travel needs to be paid in full or included in the working days. The customers need to have more of an input in the safety

    Pros

    International environment, skilled colleagues, good network

    Cons

    No expat opportunities if not European, not so good benefits, no career plan (you need to have an external offer to get promoted). Teams are made of people with different profiles, what can be chaotic sometimes...

    Advice to Management

    Give opportunities to everyone, implement a career plan, select the right people for each position.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Nordex full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Due to lack of structure (could be con) ambitious people can gain advancement relatively quickly by filling and creating positions for themselves.
    - Opportunity for international travel to work on larger projects. Ability to work with colleagues internationally with little to no red tape.
    - Top of the line health benefits and generous PTO packages. Chicago office culture very relaxed, friendly and casual.
    - Wind industry is a really challenging industry but also relatively new and exciting to work in with a very strong network.

    Cons

    - Very little room for advancement unless you want to be based in Iowa, as people leave Chicago, office positions are being filled there. Very averse to remote work.
    - Diversity is extremely poor with little to no representation of women, other races or nationalities in the company unless expats.
    - Training and development opportunities are pretty much non-existent and any self-improvement/career development needs to be done on your own time and dime.
    - Wind industry is overall unstable and causes many swings in the business which can be very stressful for the companies involved.
    - Poorly executed merger resulting in the global fallout of many longtime, talented employees.

    Advice to Management

    I honestly don't think management cares what employees think at Nordex/Acciona.
